30 workouts in 30 days - Trusting the Process


Sunday, April 22, 2012

So a few weeks ago, I decided I had to try something to get myself out of the rut I was in. Maybe it was my clothes not fitting as well, or the email I got about my 20 year high school reunion coming up in July. Maybe it was the simple fact that Sunday was April 1st and there were 30 days in the month. Whatever it was, it gave me some motivation I'd been missing for a while.
I decided that it was time to work my own bootcamp back into my life. I'd done the Spark Bootcamp before and loved it. It really gave me momentum and something to focus on, so I could work exercise into my life every day. I needed that again. On April 1st, I started. And I have worked out in some way EVERY DAY since then.
Week 1 - I was sore and it was a mental battle to talk myself into getting the workout done each day. I had to be a little stern with myself. And I had to figure out how to fit exercise in around our daily lives. With 3 boys, work, house, church and now my oldest playing baseball, it wasn't easy. But, I DID IT!
Week 2 - Feeling better about this plan. Still a little sore from time to time, but feeling stronger. By the end of the week, I noticed my pants were fitting a little better and I could see a change. I liked the way I looked more than I had 14 days earlier. So I stepped on the scale - and it hadn't changed. Not one eensy bit. Dang it all. But, so what if the numbers hadn't really changed. I looked better and I felt better. Press on, right?
Week 3 - Still getting the work done. More of a priority for me now, as I'm determined not to miss even 1 day. And hubby is now asking me when I'm going to workout so he can keep the kids out of the way. (Love that man, by the way.) Feeling even better about how I look. Step on the scale - and there's a change. Not huge, only about half a pound. But it's a change. And in the right direction. Whoo hoo!
So now I'm sharing this with you - my SparkFriends. I had kept this to myself, mostly because I was afraid I'd let myself down and not get the job done. But the other thing I've learned in the last 3 weeks is that I'm stronger than I thought was. I'd done this before and I am confident now that I can do this again!
